As you probably already figured out, this is an issue with VSS as demonstrated by your test, not TDP.

Check the Event Viewer to see if there are other errors that give more details you could use to search on Google and/or http://support.microsoft.com .

Make sure all the Windows updates are current, Microsoft may have patches for VSS.
